  • As the only "Class B" Air Force museum on the East coast, it is second only to the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, OH. There are not only aircraft from every era, but two levels of inside...

  • Great place to see how our brave military men and women protected our country during war times. We arrived too late to see all of it but the staff were so kind and let us stay a bit longer.

  • An awesome museum - a must-see! This site is located on the southeast corner of the Robbins Parkway and Oak Avenue intersection. The entrance is south of the buildings. There is plenty of parking in the parking lot in front of the complex of buildings. There is no cost to the museum and there are volunteers inside each of the buildings. You can visit the buildings in any order but I would suggest going to the 3 stories one directly in front of the parking lot first. It has a beautiful foyer, gift shop, and an information desk where you can get suggestions on what you may want to focus on during your visit. The museum is actually a set of 5 buildings focused on different items. You could easily spend hours or days visiting each of these buildings. The main 3 story building focuses on the historical aspect and spans 3 stories. The building to the south houses the Vietnam era. The courtyard in the middle of the building was being used to launch rockets on the day I visited. The two buildings on the east of the courtyard house various displays and some works-in-progress. As an added bonus, there are planes on display outside the main buildings including a B-52, Presidential plane, and more. Overall, it is a very nice museum and a must-see for any aviation enthusiast or American history buff. I highly recommend this for any visitor in the area.
  • Great experience! Free admission. Granted donations are welcomed. Some awesome planes are going here. So much history. Great displays and exhibits. My kids really enjoyed themselves here. Oh and FREE admission if i didn't mention that before.
  • This place is absolutely amazing. Some of the most groundbreaking technological advancements by humankind, and it's free, no one bugs you, and it's all available to you at your own pace/level of interest. In addition to extremely cool aircraft, there's also fascinating history told through numerous artifacts, dioramas, and displays. You gotta see it - three HUGE hangars' worth of stuff, plus aircraft outside, and it's freakin' FREE. You might get lucky and see and C5 fly overhead, as well.
  • Best and probably the largest aviation museum you could ever set foot in. Born not far from here, I've been privileged to see many additions added over the years to become what it is now. And to think it all started with just a few aircraft and a quonset hut. Favorite highlights are the SR-71 on display, the flight simulator, I-Max theater, and of course, the gift shop. There is a cafe on the top floor of the rotunda but it was closed on my last visit. There is a playground near the parking area so bring the whole family!
  • This place is a great stop for any aviation or military buff. The amount of planes here is amazing. They have some hands on cockpits for the young and young at heart to jump into and play with all the buttons and gauges. 4 buildings in all. We did not have enough time to appreciate all that is here, since we hit this on the way to our destination. Kids enjoyed it and loved their models from the gift shop. If you are in the area and have some time to spare it is definitely worth a stop, and it's free, so why not?!
